Presidential Address, Southern Society for Philosophy and Psychology, delivered on April 8, 1977, in Nashville, Tennessee. An earlier version was presented in the Bicentennial Symposium, sponsored by the Graduate School Students Association of Tulane University and the Society for the Advancement of American Philosophy, on March 6, 1976, at Tulane University, New Orleans, Louisiana. I am grateful to my fellow symposiasts, Professors John Lachs of Vanderbilt University and John E. Smith of Yale University, for their helpful criticisms of the earlier version.
